Fantasy Bras worth millions of dollars!Supermodels wearing 30-pound wings!Pop stars making choreographed cameos!A televised broadcast that reaches 10 million!Today'sVictoria's Secret w88手机版登录Fashion Showis one of the biggest entertainment events of all time.
But it wasn't always that way.The first annual show—which was held at New York City's Plaza Hotel in 1995—was a relatively low-key affair meant to promote the brand's Valentine's Day offering.Sure,there were supermodels (among them: Stephanie Seymour,Beverly Peele,Rebecca Romijn,and Veronica Webb),but they literally just walked down the runway wearing bras and panties.There were no feathered costumes,没有珠宝头饰,and no live musical performances.
By 1999,Victoria's Secret was broadcasting the show on the Internet to an audience of 2 million,a $10 million "Millennium Bra" was being modeled by Heidi Klum,and Angel wings were definitely a thing.The rest,as they say,is history,but first,here's a look at some of moments from the early years.
Can't you just picture the producer being all,"This is the nude look,everyone.Let's keep it reallyfresh.Nude!" That's why the model is wearing flesh-color stockings,neutral pumps,and carrying a tan bag.
Apparently,satin was a big deal in the mid-'90s.
You know what else was a big deal?Carrying a handbag whilst wearing nothing but your skivvies.
That scene with Regina GeorgeinMean Girlsmust have been inspired by this outfit.
The name of this look,by the way,is "Scuba Diving Femme Fatale."
Are you surprised to see how different the early VS shows were?
